LAMBICS, SOURS, AND WILD ALES

When trying to decide a new BrewView series to publish, we had a few choices due to our ever-expanding collection in our beer cellar. We had a few obvious choices / themes we were going with originally, however the decision to (finally) offer a special month of BrewViews on some of the most complex of all beer styles kinda evolved into its own.

This was due to the fact that we had a special beer sitting in our cellar since December 2014, plus one other obtained from our travels to Humboldt County, California.  Another two we obtained very recently, and four VERY special beers sent to us by our good friend Stu Stuart of BELGIAN BEER ME! Beer Tours.

To describe beers that sometimes shock drinkers trying them for the first time, would be a composition bearing encyclopedic length. Not wanting to try and out write those who have already done a fine job of it, we shall simply offer our links to the classic Belgian beer styles:

BELGIAN BEER STYLE: LAMBIC

VIDEO: THE BEER HUNTER MICHAEL JACKSON TALKS ABOUT LAMBICS

This is a video from the incomparable Beer Hunter, Michael Jackson. Daniel Shelton of Shelton Brothers sat down with Michael and offered the following excerpt at You Tube regarding the video:

“In 2006 Michael Jackson, “The Beer Hunter,” and I sat down to discuss Lambics. At one point he opened the new version of his book, The Great Beer of Belgium, and read this passage.”
